LEZ Funding Support

Glasgow's LEZ is being phased in to give everyone the chance to prepare:

  • Phase 1 (buses only) was introduced on 31 December 2018
  • Phase 2 (all vehicles) commenced enforcement on 1 June 2023
  • Enforcement for zone residents will start on 1 June 2024. The vehicle must be registered to a residential address within the LEZ zone area to qualify for this grace period.

Funding Support

LEZ Support Fund:

This financial year (2023-24), the Scottish Government is providing £5 million through the LEZ Support Fund.

The Fund offers cash incentives and Travel Better credits, if non-compliant vehicles are removed from Scotland's roads.

Administered by Energy Saving Trust, the programme is means-tested and offers help to those most affected by the introduction of LEZs. It provides people and micro-businesses with financial support to travel more sustainably and meet the established air quality standards.

The Fund provides households and smaller businesses with a grant of £2,000 to incentivise disposal of a non-LEZ standard vehicle. The Fund will also offer up to further £1,000 in mobility grants or Travel Better credits to purchase a bike, e-bike or public transport vouchers.

£2 million of the overall support funding will enable the retrofitting of light goods vehicles, heavy goods vehicles and taxis through the LEZ Retrofitting Fund for microbusinesses.
